FCS set to provide new grants to CSOs

The Foundation for Civil Society (FCS) under its new 2016-2020 Strategic Plan is set to provide new grants worth TZS 5.8 billion to 120 approved Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) working in different parts of Tanzania under the area of Governance and Accountability.

The funded CSOs are expected to reach out to a million of Tanzanians in different parts of the country as well as inspire better results in sub-result areas of citizen’s participation, improved quality of policy, accountable decision making, and effective public service delivery in a period of six months.

Key intervention areas/ sectors to be supported in these new grants to CSOs include: Education; Water; Land Rights; fight against Gender Based Violence; People with Disability, Youths and Women Empowerment.

According to internal FCS procedures, all grantees have to first undergo the mandatory Manage Your Grant (MYG) training so as to enable them fine-tune their project indicators, expected outcomes, as well as budgets. Also, the MYG allows the grantees to prepare plans of action for activities as well as monitoring and evaluation tools to ensure results are well captured.

The new approved grantees have undergone the Manage Your Grant Training (MYG) - designed to enhance capacity to manage project implementation, grant, as well as tracking and reporting of results and outcomes of projects to be implemented. It also exposed the grantees to contractual obligations with regard to the project implementation and management of funds.

Current FCS Development Partners include, the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID), Swiss Development Cooperation (SDC), Embassy of Denmark/DANIDA, and NORAD.
